We are studying the disciple John in my Bible Study.

And when I was doing my homework the other day, we were asked to put ourselves in the place of the newly-called disciple. What must it have been like to follow Jesus – to see Him perform miracles? Turn water into wine, heal Peter's mother-in-law of a fever?

Those first few days must have been so exciting.

Can't you just imagine how John must have thought each new morning, "I wonder what He's going to do today!"

So, I'm pondering this...

John saw Jesus do some really big things.

Goodness, John even saw Jesus feed a crowd of over 5,000 with two fish and five loaves of bread.

THAT is a "big fish" moment for sure.

But, I'm thinking, there also had to be times when John just sat across from a campfire,and shared a sparse meal of fish with Jesus. No hoopla, no miracles, just sitting…

A "little fish" moment, if you will.

What were John's thoughts then?...

  1. Hi Sharon:

    I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I appreciate you providing the guest post this month.

    I am always blessed and encouraged by your posts.

  2. Heading over to Joan's place. Imagine that... two favorite bloggers in one fell swoooooop.

    Feel like I'm catching the big fish.

  3. I left you a comment on Joan's blog! sandie

  4. Thanks Sharon...One fish, two fish, blue fish... Love this OPENING... is it fishing opener? (lol) Don't know if I have time to catch the rest... but I think I read this when the two posts came out just did not write any feedback.

    Totally unlike me... but I'm a weary fisherman, so I will just go off and sit in my boat with Jesus keeping it afloat and try to remember or imagine ..."the rest of the story..." until I can go finish (not fishin'...same letters though)I like the way you set this campfire scene... press on Sharon, I'm praying and done catching up... for now, Peggy
